Doug Ainge is a teacher, not a politician. And as a teacher, Doug Ainge has spent his career helping young people learn how to find answers to tough problems. Now, Doug Ainge has the right answers for us.
The right answer on jobs
Doug Ainge will always be on the side of small business.
Doug supports tax incentives for companies that hire unemployed
Oregonians and cutting red tape so small business
can start hiring. He’ll also vote for investments in Oregon
companies that create local jobs.
“As a business owner, I’m confident Doug Ainge’s economic plan is right for us.”
- Debra Mott
The right answer on government accountability
In tough times, government has to do more with less. Doug Ainge supports freezing legislative salaries, auditing state agencies to reduce waste and inefficiency, and reducing contractor fraud and favoritism.
The right answer on public safetyDoug Ainge supports stronger penalties on Internet predators and longer sentences for sex offenders and identity theft. Doug will also vote to keep youth correctional facilities and forensic labs open.
The right answer on education
As a teacher, Doug’s education plan includes supporting early
childhood education programs like Head Start, decreasing
class size in public schools, and making college and higher
learning more affordable.
“I taught with Doug Ainge for 16 years and I can tell you there’s nobody more committed to education than him.”
